Graham Athletics Announcement

Re: Summer Facility usage and fall back to play protocols

Hello GW Graham Families,

We want to take this opportunity to touch base with everyone as we head into the summer.  We received clarification yesterday that all school district #33 schools and gyms will be completely closed down between July 10th to August 14th. This means all school district sites will be closed to all coaches and athletes for all school sports and teams.  The school district is hopeful that athletes and coaches can begin training during the last two weeks of the summer in an attempt to prepare for the fall high school season of play.  However, BC school sports in conjunction with Dr. Bonnie Henry (Provincial Government) will provide additional information throughout the summer and clearly outline the back to play protocols for high school athletics in the fall. We are hopeful that we can reach a safe and healthy place where all of our student athletes are back training and competing in September.  Please feel free to contact myself directly by email, text or phone in the coming weeks and months regarding Graham Athletics (in conjunction with the provincial government, BC school sports and school district 33) back to play protocols as they become available.

At this time we encourage student athletes to continue their individual training, and if additional training resources are required please don’t hesitate to contact myself and or your Graham coaching staff.

Thanks everyone, have a safe and healthy summer and we hope to see you all back in Blue and White competing for Graham Athletics this fall.

 

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF OUR 209-10 STUDENT ATHLETES!!!!!

While we all continue to work our way out of the Covid-19 fog and we continue to adapt and adjust our annual traditions, it is with great Pride and a little sadness that we recognize our Student Athlete of the year finalists and winners, and celebrate our year in sport through our annual slide show!

It was another amazing year in Graham Athletics, with new success, new lessons learned, and for the first time in school History a new Senior Varsity Boys AAA Provincial Championship!!!

Once again Pride, Passion, Spirit and most importantly, our sense of Family burst through in every season we had this year!! While we didnt get the opportunity to come together and celebrate our year, we hope our annual Graham Athletics Slide show allows everyone to take a minute and be grateful for every opportunity we had this year.

 

I would like to congrulate all of our Athlete of the year finalists and winners for the 2009-2010 athletic season.
